Part one of the presentation dealt with the reasons we are seeing so much anxiety among youth in our times, even pre-pandemic. Of course, there are complexities added to these issues by the pandemic. The presentation’s second part dealt with some steps and ways of responding to anxiety and mental health issues in this time. Two important responses are
1. to simply “ask” (‘how would you rate your level of anxiety right now?’) and
2. “empathize and empower” (say, ‘that stinks … you can handle it.’).
Of course, there were other responses and all more fully explained but those two are basic. If you are interested in learning more about youth, faith and mental health, you can go to and move about on the following link at the Fuller Youth Institute (at which Kara Powell is on staff). https://fulleryouthinstitute.org/author/kara-powell -EGN
